, no tax, no S&H, get to keep your existing camera which you can sell

CLP 899.99, tax, didn't get S&H price, have to send in your camera

The idea isn't to turn in a valuable camera, it's to turn in a broken p&s which you can purchase for as little as $9.00 on eBay.

2nd, I dont even see the T3i listed on the refurbs website. $899.99 is the regular, brand new price direct from Canon. They may not even sell refurbs of the T3i yet.

I've seen this mistake made once or twice though, no worries.

I was very specific and direct on the phone, she seemed to understand exactly what I was asking for. I also asked if they offered any other model which had HD video capability and a swivel LCD screen, to which she said no, nothing else within the Loyalty program with those features and a comparable price. *shrug*

The T2i has just about everything the same as the T3i, just without the swivel screen. With the 18-55, it's $511.99 and should suit you just fine.

$714.99 brand new on Amazon, $639.99 used. $511.99 via CLP.

You stumbled upon what can be the weak -- or strong - link in the program: the customer service reps. Sometimes you have to finesse them a bit. Sometimes, they tell you something and they're flat out wrong. In the case of the latter, you hang up, wait a few minutes and call back hoping to get someone else.

And seriously, DONT turn in a SX20IS to the CLP.

$9.00 free shipping to save you $200 on the price of a camera. wait till you get the camera so you have the serial available for the CLP.

If they still offer the 60D through CLP, I'm not sure why you're chasing a T3i.

Yeah, T3i & 60D are more or less interchangeable. 60D is their first attempt to amalgamate the lines (and I dont like it anymore, I used to be OK with it). The XXD series bodies do not need the rotating screen and DO need the joystick control. Hell, the 1Dx comes with TWO joysticks! MOAR JOYSTICKS!

The T2i isn't what I want and if I'm going to spend $500+ I will spend the extra to get exactly what I want. I also have a PowerShot A520 to turn in, we're just upgrading from an SX20.

My assumption was that the T3i would be the less expensive option, and she told me there were no other comparable models in that price range, so that sort of shut the door. In the back of my head I'm thinking '60D' but after she told me the price of the T3i I wasn't even interested in pursuing. We have a bunch of EOS 7D at work but I can't take them home (yet).

There aren't many technical differences between T2i and the T3i beyond the rotating screen. What else exactly is enticing you to the T3i that the T2i doesn't have?

T3i hasn't even been out for 6 months yet, has it? Doubt the refurbs are pouring in at this point.
post #40 of 157
Built-in manual audio levels, wireless flash xmitter and that utilitarian swivel screen. We have it on the SX20 IS and can't shoot without it now. The sale price is less than $100 diff so why not just get the one that has a couple added features?
